The Combination Tracing command in the program module MAXiMA allows tracing combinations. It retrieves detailed information on contributing single load cases.
This post covers the last of three steps to perform combination and superposition using the “SOFiSTiK: Superposition Manager – Combination Rules” Task.
A combination rule without actions and loads is like cooking a dish without ingredients.
Running a design requires design load cases dependent on the selected design code. Compiling these load cases by hand is possible and for some projects and specific calculations such as nonlinear analysis necessary.
Checking analysis and design results is an essential detail of an engineer’s work. Hence, it’s important to understand the automatic numbering system of the used software package.
